MFN Right (Remix)
2 Chainz Feat. Lil Wayne
Prior to the release of his joint project with Lil Wayne, Collegrove, 2 Chainz had been riding relatively high off the success of his the uber catchy "MFN Right," which appeared on his solo mixtape Felt Like Cappin. The song features relatively simple production from Mike WiLL and Zaytoven, carried by a flute melody and sparse keys, as well as relatively simple lyrics, but to great effect.
Hard Time Tryna Whack Me
It seems like 2016 is finally going to be the year when Trouble gets his due respect.
J $tash Feat. Rich The Kid
Earlier this month, Rich the Kid announced his new label Rich Forever Music and quickly revealed the signing of Chicago's Famous Dex. He's now added another artist to the roster, Florida-via-NY rapper J $tash. Rich shows up on Stash's new single, "Bricks" -- his first on Rich Forever -- and the beat comes from the always reliable Zaytoven.
SAFE Feat. Nessly
OVO Sound Radio is currently live on Beats 1, and tonight's special guest, OVO's newly signed R&B act dvsn., just took over the decks. As usual, the episode kicked off with a mix from Oliver El-Khatib, and though the OVO co-founder didn't share any exclusives from within his camp, he did premiere a new cut from buzzing Toronto rapper SAFE.
Young Scooter Feat. Young Dolph
It's been a fairly quiet 2016 for Young Scooter. At the beginning of the year, he hinted at a joint mixtape with Future, his boss at Freebandz. It now a solo tape will come before that, as the Black Migo Gang leader has announced that he will release Street Lottery 3 on April 11. With the announcement comes the tape's first single, "Real," featuring the "King of Memphis," aka Young Dolph.
Migos fans received some potentially scary news last night, as Offset was arrested for driving with a suspended license and was taken back to jail. Luckily, he was released this morning, and in celebration of his quick (compared to last time) return, Migos have dropped a new track.
Lil Uzi Vert Feat. Rich The Kid & Omelly
While his Don Cannon-produced single "Money Longer" continues to pick up airplay, Lil Uzi Vert has dropped off a new track featuring his good friend Rich the Kid as well as a fellow Philly native in Omelly, who was last heard on the most recent Drake diss put out by his Dreamchasers boss.
21 Savage is cruising on a lot of hype right now, earning attention through his very bleak, minimal trap sound, sounding something like a post-apocalyptic Bankroll Fresh. His latest track, "Oh Ok," takes an incredibly simple beat from Zaytoven, and somehow drains all of the energy out of his bouncy organ sounds with his half-whispered delivery, turning it into a slow, dark groove.
We've been listening to 2 Chainz' "Felt Like Cappin'" mixtape all week, and after listening to OVO Sound Radio last night, it seems we're not the only ones. The Zaytoven and Mike WiLL-produced "MF'N Right" made an appearance during last night's broadcast, and it served as a welcome departure from the mix's usual aesthetic.
Tracy T has been trucking along as MMG's Atlanta faction for the last little while, keeping up a steady output as we await his debut album with the label. Today, he continues his strong work ethic with the release of "Bandz," a collab with the region's most reliable ivory-tickler, Zaytoven.
Rich The Kid Feat. Wiz Khalifa
As expected, Rich The Kid came through yesterday and released his latest body of work called Dabbin Fever. Laced with 12 tracks in total, the follow up to last month’s Whip It tape with ILoveMakonnen, features guest appearances from Migos, Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Skippa Da Flippa, and more. Looking to highlight the tape, here goes one of the project’s standout cuts with “Dab Fever” featuring Wiz Khalifa. Take a listen to the Zaytoven & CassiusJay-produced collab and let us know what you think.
Fetty Wap Feat. Remy Boyz
It looks like Fetty Wap is trying to close out 2015 the way it all started and went... on a high note. Earlier in the week he released the holiday-themed song called “Merry Xmas,” and now tonight he’s back with another one for us called “Handgun,” featuring the Remy Boyz.
Offset finally got out of jail on Friday and proceeded to drop a surprisingly lit solo track the next called "First Day Out." Now that they are reunited, Migos drop their first track as a trio, a low-key banger by the name of "Case Closed." Basically it's the story of the now infamous concert at Georgia Southern that got
B.o.B Feat. London Jae
B.o.B and his artist, who also happens to be a frequent collaborator, London Jae, team up today for "BDTDT." The Zaytoven-produced banger is onomatopoeic-- B.o.B and London Jae shows us just how well they can roll their Rrrrrs with a very catchy hook that is more noise-focused than lyric-focused.
Last night, Chief Keef dropped off Finally Rollin 2, his 5th project of the year. The tape is mostly made up of freestyles over both old-school and new-school Atlanta beats. The few original tracks feature beats from ATL producers, too, including Sonny Digital, TM88, and Zaytoven, who produced the standout cut "Foes." Zay might be the producer with whom Keef has the most chemistry at this point in his career. As he's done with Migos, he has a clear sense of what kind of beats will inspire catchy flows from Sosa.
Rich Homie Quan
Like many of his Atlanta-based peers, Rich Homie Quan is nothing if not prolific. Today he's shared his third mixtape of the year with ABTA (Album Before The Album), an exciting promise for his long-awaited debut album. The project features 13 new tracks, and while we're still making our way through it, the rapper's new collaboration with Zaytoven "Numbers" is an early highlight.
2 Chainz Feat. Jeezy
2 Chainz just announced that he's got three projects coming down the pipes, including a joint album with Lil Wayne called Colligrove.
You can't talk about Juicy J's resurgence without talking about Lex Luger. The Atlanta producer was an integral force in breaking Juicy with a new audience through the pairs collaborative Rubba Band Business series. With his new studio album THC: The Hustle Continues on deck, he's now teamed up with yet another ATL producer -- and one who's similarly informing the sound of rap at large as Luger did in 2010.
In true Sosa fashion, Chief Keef came through unannounced Thursday night and released two new songs called “Let Me Know” and “Flattered,” both of which are produced by hitmaker Zaytoven and will see life on the duo's upcoming joint project Finally Rolling 2.
Let Me Know
By now you should there’s no method to Chief Keef’s unorthodox release strategy. On any given day or night, the Chicago rapper will drop off a new track on us, and that’s exactly what he did tonight with “Let Me Know.”
